  1. When you dismiss a meeting reminder, then the meeting is rescheduled to a date in the future, the reminder should be reset to appear again.

    After a reminder for a meeting is dismissed, it WILL NOT appear again in the event that the meeting is rescheduled to a later date. When a meeting is rescheduled, Outlook should check for the dismissed reminder, and if the new meeting time is far enough in the future based upon the selected reminder time span, it should reset the reminder to occur again. I'm guessing there are technical reasons for not doing this, because it's something that should have been implemented years ago.

  4. Option to hide the date navigator and keep the coming appointments in the to-do bar

    I want to have both my tasks and upcoming appointments in the To-do bar. In previous versions it was possible to show only the appointments and switch off the date navigator. This made it possible to see all my current tasks and the next meetings. There is no room for a date navigator that I do not need to have on my screen all the time.

  9. Option to display weekends / non-work days in alternate color or even hide them in Outlook 2016

    To be able to designate a different background color for weekend (non-work) days so that's it's much easier to visually differentiate work days from non work days. Or provide an option to hide the weekends or non working days in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Or please allow for shading weekends on month at a glance mode. Also, it would be helpful to have calendar months highlighted in contrasting color so that months are easily distinguishable.

  10. Users should be able to print merged calandars rather than just select one calendar. Holidays , appointments, birthdays etc.

    Presently users can only print one calendar at a time.

    It should be possible to print merged calendars so that appointments, shared calendars, birthdays and holidays can all be seen on a single sheet

  11. Integrate Tasks into calendar entries - not just at calendar base or moved/copied

    Integrate Tasks into Calendar entries - without losing them in Tasks by having to move to Calendar OR creating an extra entry by having to copy them into the Calendar.

  15. Meeting Organizer should have an option to receive a notification regarding the attendees for the meeting invite in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to send a notification to the meeting organizer for updated attendees list and also who hasn't responded to the meeting invite. This should be an opt-in setting and also allow the organizer to set the specific time-frame for the notice(i.e. 2 hours before the meeting or 1 day). Another opt-in setting could be to send a reminder email to the invitee who hasn't responded also at a certain time-frame.

    Also in a scenario where there are large number of appointment invitees, it would be beneficial for an organizer to use a response tracker without getting…

  18. follow up next working day

    The follow up flags are great and I often use the tomorrow option to push non urgent tasks until tomorrow, however when my tasks are work-related, pushing from Friday to Saturday just creates a bunch of tasks to move again to Monday on my Saturday morning! Having an option to push the task to 'Next Working Day' would solve this problem if it were available.... I often have around 100-200 tasks so this may not be as significant a problem for those who have a lot less!

  19. Ability to sync several calendars into my Outlook 2016 (Office 365) Calendar

    I would really love to be able to sync my personal calendar (yahoo) as well as a CRM system calendar (Redtail) to my Outlook 2016 Calendar - having to keep/update 3 separate calendars straight is a huge challenge.
